For the love of summer

With lighter evenings and warmer weather (finger’s crossed), summer is a time when many crafters have more time to catch up on the ‘wish list’, so its an opportunity to entice them into your store and fill the shelves with the right supplies for cashing in on this time of year.

This issue is full of products and ideas to get children and families crafting over the summer break. We take a detailed look at the embossing and British-made trends, plus we investigate new tools to make crafting easier. As usual, we have a huge selection of the newest products to the market including the latest information of beads, gemstones, and paints.  read more >
